    The Only Known Satchel Paige Signed Jersey. Paige famously mused, "Don't look back--something might be gaining on you," but the new owner of this singular rarity should feel quite comfortable in the belief that he's the only man in the race. While Paige's legendary longevity supplied the hobby with a reasonable population of autographed postcards, photographs and baseballs, we have never encountered the Negro League legend on a garment. The practice of signing jerseys started to pick up steam in the late 1980's, several years after Paige's passing in 1982. Clearly the original collector was a hobby pioneer.

    The spectacular state of preservation feels like overkill when considering the intense rarity, as Paige's blue sharpie, reading, "Best Wishes From Satchel Paige," projects with 9+/10 boldness. The blank-backed knit pullover jersey is free of any stains or tears. "Sand-Knit [size] L" label appears at lower left front tail. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the advanced autograph collector. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
